  6. This is the classic way to poach eggs. You can also use my cling film method, very easy! In the meantime melt the remaining butter in a small pan until lightly nutty. Don't burn it! Scoop the buttermilk mashed potatoes in a deep plate. Top with the poached egg and sprinkle with the grey shrimp. Drizzle with the melted butter, extra chopped chives or parsley and some pepper and salt. Serve hot.
